StreamWhat is it? An object representing an entity on an adapter capable of receiving, processing, or supplying data. Notice that a stream is identical to a WDM Stream architecture pin. A stream can accept data from or supply data to the processor, such as a stream representing an MPEG input or can simply route data through hardware, such as a stream representing an NTSC output jack on the back of an adapter. The purpose of representing nondata hardware with a stream is that the properties of the hardware can be controlled by software.
